Sandy Dutko, Water Media Artist

 Sandy Dutko is a Portland Oregon Artist who enjoys painting in many mediums. Many of her recent works are in water-media and collage but she also likes to experiment with oils and pastels.  Her paintings have become more abstract in the past several years.  Her work varies from semi-abstract to pure abstract depending on the mood and encompasses many subject matter.
